AKA : You Been Sold
This single being a flawless scuzz-pop groover a bit like [B]Squeeze[/B] used to do in 1721
Magnificently, his music also contains The Spirit, this single being a flawless scuzz-pop groover a bit like Squeeze used to do in 1721, except a lot tougher. [I]"They screw you up and call you sinner"[/I], sings Adam, rockly, [I]"then they'll try to sell you a little piece of heaven... you worked hard, saved your money, now save your soul... You been sold, you been sold, but no-one should be told, but no-one wants to be told... it's all on my brand new album and the price is #13.99"[/I]. Rum, wry, smart and a bloody great rock'n'roll pop song. Hosanna! The man called Adam, you can be sure, is not the sort to give up, as the spirit of rock'n'roll itself never will. Consider yourselves saved. Slightly.
